For the first time since the first international break when Spurs were still unbeaten and top of the league, Ryan Sessegnon is available for Tottenham training. Back from injury, with a new manager and a new formation, the question is can Antonio Conte jumpstart Sessegnon’s Tottenham career?
Sessegnon rose quickly at a young age
Ryan Sessegnon was one of those seemingly long-term Tottenham targets. Breaking onto the scene as a teenager in the Championship with Fulham in 2017/18, Sessegnon looked like he could be the next Gareth Bale with proper development. His 15 goals and six assists playing up and down the left flank in 46 games for the Cottagers drew a lot of attention.
Seemingly a target for Tottenham after that breakthrough season Sessegnon stayed with Fulham after promotion but did not have nearly the impact in the Premier League as he had the season before in the Championship.
Sessegnon had his moments like two assists against Southampton in a rare win. The assist on the game-winner in a 1-0 win over Huddersfield. Sessegnon had Fulham’s only goal in a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton. However, the goals were few and far between and the wins were just as few. After finishing with only two goals but six assists Sessegnon and Fulham were relegated back to the Championship.
Only Ryan never made the drop, he was signed that summer by Spurs and has been a man in search of opportunity ever since.
